Why Essex?

Over a third of our student population comes from outside of the UK so you'll feel right at home at Essex. Many of our Taiwanese students are studying courses in our departments of Government, Essex Business School, School of Philosophy and Art History and the Department of Language and Linguistics.
I chose to study at Essex due to its reputation for teaching excellence, the internationally diverse student body, and the stunning campus.
I learned a lot from my course, not just about the subject, but important transferrable skills, such as discipline, time management, and organisational skills. 
Since graduation, I've worked for big companies including ASUS and Intel, and I'm now the co-founder of an organisation called GCOMM.

我是芷柔(Emily)在台灣是機械碩士畢業且有機械工程師的相關經驗,想再進修和轉換跑道。Essex 的Artificial Intelligence - 課程的實作成分很高,作業量也不少,每門課幾乎都要完成1/2份的程式碼,建議有些基礎程式背景較佳。學校的世界學術排名雖然不高,但在英國本地也算是排名前面的學校,且在 AI 和 Robotics 的研究與實務聲望高。當初選擇Essex是因為學校重視產業與學術的結合,是實務性較高的學校。學校新創中心(Innovation Centre)與職業中心(Career hub),提供很多就業與創業的資源。Essex Colchester campus就坐落在Wivenhoe Park,小城鎮民風純樸,適合專心學習。校區距離倫敦大約 1 小時的火車車程,非常靠近。學費便宜,生活費也非常便宜。
